Chapter 100: Performance
A lethal smile hovered over her face.
She had underestimated Princess Gu. So apart from asking her to check her out, she was even getting involved with her marriage?
The second son of Ministry of Revenue was, according to her old memories, a dumb-headed person. So they wanted her to marry a dumb-headed man! Who did they think she was!
And Madame Gu too… She was a woman who only cared about benefits, and Gu Chaoyan never hated a person like that.
She even thought about sparing some favor to Madame Gu if she could help her every now and then but now, this old b*tch was making her marry a dumb-headed man!
Gu Chaoyan clenched her fists tightly.
She was trying hard to resist the impulse of hitting the Gu Family.
Madame Gu and Mrs. Gu stopped talking too.
Since the banquet already started.
At this banquet held by Princess Virtue, there were many young masters and ladies invited.
The Gu Family was just one of the tip of the iceberg.
Several ladies already started to perform.
Their performances were okay, neither extraordinary nor terrible.
After several rounds, a very clear-sounding girl spoke, “I heard that the prettiest and the ugliest girl of the capital city are both here, are they performing too?”
As the voice rang out, everyone quieted down.
Although the voice sounded arrogant, no one dared to counter her. Instead, everyone was drawn to the Gu Family.
The lady stood up and came to her, “Who is the famous ugliest girl of the capital city, let me take a look!”
Gu Chaoyan looked helpless. She was indeed famous, but she was famous for nothing good.
“Me.” Gu Chaoyan admitted without trying to hide herself. She would be pointed out anyway.
Princess Xunyang sized up Gu Chaoyan from head to feet. She looked arrogant, but not disdainful.
That made Gu Chaoyan feel good about her.
“You are the ugliest girl? How disappointing!” Princess Xunyang said with displeasure, and then turned to Gu Ruxue. “So you are the prettiest one?”
Gu Ruxue nodded bashfully.
Princess Xunyang rolled her eyes, ignoring her. She turned to Gu Chaoyan. “So you are performing too?”
Before Gu Chaoyan was about to speak, Gu Ruxue interrupted. “Princess, my sister is performing and she has made full preparations for it.”
Princess Xunyang glared at her. “Shut up, did I talk with you?”
Gu Ruxue pursed her lips, not daring to utter a word with head lowered.
Princess Xunyang was known for her arrogance, but she was a princess no one dared to offend. So Gu Ruxue was totally alone, and even the Prince of Duke Changning did not utter a word in her defense.
Gu Chaoyan knew that she could not turn down the performance today. And she had no intention of turning it down either.
She might be Gu Chaoyan now, but she had made a deal with Lord Huai. They were getting married, so she had to make a show of herself instead of living under the rumor throughout the entire life. She needed to stay fair for her partner.
She nodded. “Princess, I am going to perform.”
Oh? Princess Xunyang was surprised. “What are you going to perform for us today?”
